Dialogue with High Commissioner. Housing problem

Dialogue with High Commissioner. Housing problem

It is important for a person to be confident in the safety and reliability of his home, that is why the creation of comfortable and favorable living conditions is one of the priority tasks of implementing programs for resettlement of citizens from emergency housing to new apartments.

Several people approached me with a complaint about violation of housing rights. According to them, citizen P. arbitrarily moved into the communal apartment where they lived, while the authorities did not take measures to evict her. Since the residential area was the property of the city of Sevastopol, the district court granted the applicants' claims, but P. deliberately led the apartment into a condition unfit for living.

In order to verify the above circumstances, I sent an appeal to the prosecutor’s office of the city of Sevastopol. According to the reply, a letter was sent to the Department of Architecture and Urban Planning of the city of Sevastopol with a proposal to prepare and develop measures for the overhaul of residential premises of state ownership. In the future, the residential building was deemed to be demolished due to its emergency condition.

Thus, the applicants had a prospect of qualitative living conditions improvement. Unfortunately, this case is not the only one. Emergency housing, which poses a threat to life and health, is a problem in many Russian cities. Living in such facilities is extremely dangerous, and certainly, inaction of the authorities in the matter of improving housing conditions is unacceptable.

Dialogue with High Commissioner. Protecting children from cruelty

12 October 2018
Two cases that I will discuss today are striking to the depths of the soul. I have often said that childhood is a period in life when a person needs special protection and comprehensive support. It is impossible to imagine what people can be capable of if they refuse to help children, and even more if they are cruel to them. The chairperson of the "Association of Large Families",…
